The Maurice's top and pants, some of the JC Penny jewelry, and the Walmart dress I bought in South Dakota while visiting my grandma. And the rest I bought at home over tax free weekend. I'm really happy with it all and I was SO excited about my new shoes! I went into Nine West just to waste time not expecting to find or buy anything but I ended up finding so many great pairs of flats on sale for only $29.99 and then if you buy more than 2 pairs of shoes you get 20% so for all three shoes I only paid $80! Hopefully this and my Neiman Marcus hauls with suffice for my back to school shopping!

Katie Holmes self-designed dress

Katie surprised everyone at the Tropic Thunder red carpet in Los Angeles by wearing a navy dress that she designed herself with the assistance of her stylist Jeanne Yang. Her dress received great reviews, her rep says that there is no line in the works.

I love the style and her new 'do, but the dress looks almost messy and unfinished. I think she looks great, but the leather trimming on the bodice should have been done more cleanly, but I'm a perfectionist and slightly OCD.

So...What do you think? Yay or Nay?

Gilt Dolce & Gabbana Animalier Sale

I just about died when I saw the email that the Dolce & Gabbana Animalier Handbags sale had begun. Unfortunately, I've been out of town in South Dakota and haven't been able to get on the internet and missed the bags. Here's a preview of my favorite bags, the first being the one I already own!

And if I work up the courage, I may order this for $278:
